I recieved my copy of Forbidden from the publisher. Read my review of Forsaken The Demon Trappers #1 (Click Here) First things first. Jana Oliver has again wrote an amazing book in The Demon Trappers Series. In Forsaken she had me hooked with Riley's story and now in Fobidden I'm obsessed with it. So here's the list Riley made at the end of Forsaken on a crisp white napkin. Find Dad Bust Holy Water Scam Save the World Do Laundry Buy Groceries At the end of Forbidden Riley is able to stroke out 3 things on the list! 1. . . 2. . . 3. . . YAY! Loads of Cheers!! Okay but now we have the other two things on the list. . . Bust the Holy Water Scam. . well she's nearly there so *Fingers Crossed* and save the world. . . Yep Crossing everything for that!! So to a less nicer topic Ori you asshat! (Stole the saying from Riley) I mean why oh why did you have to turnout to be bad? I didn't particularly want him to be with Riley cause there's a guy perfect for her which everyone knows not thinking about anyone in particular. . . *CoughBeckCough* Bit of a sore throat! Simon . . . Harpers apprentice, Riley's sweet, caring, nice, boyfriend. . . turned psyso!! He really know's how to make a Demon Trapper feel special. . . by pouring a bottle of Holy Water over her. . . Like what was he thinking? Well clearly he wasn't due to the Ori being a jerk! Beck. . . Can I just say his name again? Beck! Caring . . . loving . . . Protective . . . Strong. . . Beck! He really is perfect. . . for Riley!! At the end of Forbidden were meant to think that he dobbed out Riley to The Demon Hunters but I don't think that's the case as he when Riley answered the phonecall he was about to apologise! So Riley and Beck are so gona get together in Forgiven. . . which is out in 2012. . . Que tears! If they don't end up together . . . they will in my head. We saw a different side to Harper in Forbidden he opened up a bit to Riley after Ori had killed the Garde Five that killed her father. It was nice seeing a bit of his story. I was interested to know more. Stewart. . . I love him! That's all I can say really! I like the relationship between him and Beck as he's knows about Becks feelings towards Riley. . as he says 'push your personal feelings aside' when Beck goes to see him at his house when Harpers there as his wee place has gone to ruins cause of Grade Five. I'm a massive fan of Witches so I loved seeing Ayden casting the speel to summing Rileys Father. Lucifer. . . was staring at us and Riley right in the face!!! I mean the wee hints through the book made it so obvious at the end. One last thing Justine, the reporter that Beck has. . . relations with there's something not right about her that's obvious but I'm not sure if she's working for The Demon Hunters. . . and for the press. . . I was even thinking what if Ori did what he did with Simon as a way of distracting Beck so he could get with Riley. . .OR even if she'll be in Forgiven I can't wait for Forgiven to read more about Riley Anora Blackthorne. . . and Beck. . . <3 And the rest of The Demon Trapper family :) All in All: Forbidden The Demon Trappers is another unique brilliant story told by magnificent author Jana Oliver. You will not be disappointed when reading this as Jana keeps you on the edge of your seat begging for more.

Riley's life just gets tougher and tougher in the second instalment of The Demon Trappers series. Her dad's body has been stolen and resurrected by a necromancer; Simon, the boyfriend she made a deal with Heaven to save, is accusing her of being in league with the devil; Beck is "spending time" with a manipulative red-haired journalist, and the demons all seem to have it out for "Blackthorne's daughter." Her life kind of sucks. However, with every sling and arrow, Riley gets a little harder, a little tougher. Forbidden sees Riley as a much more mature protagonist who is able to hold her own. Her blossoming relationship with Ori, a mysterious new fella who is blatantly not quite what he seems, was more grown-up than the few kisses she shared with the innocent Simon in Forsaken. But part of growing up is making some dumb mistakes and sometimes not being able to see the woods for the trees. Riley is guilty of both in Forbidden, but we forgive her because she's an immensely likeable character. I was annoyed with Beck in this book. It remains fairly obvious that he and Riley should be together, but instead he has himself some fun with an evil snake of a reporter who is blatantly willing to work "under cover" for the story she wants. His double standards where his relationship was concerned, compared to that of Riley and Ori, were what annoyed me. Yet you kind of forgive him because he's evidently confused by his feelings for Riley and the instructions coming from his pants where the evil red-head is concerned! This book took some of my assumptions about who were the good guys and who were the bad guys in this book. I loved the blurring of the lines between good and evil, Heaven and Hell, assumption and reality. Jana Oliver crafted this sequel brilliantly.show moreby Laura Williams
This book is amazing. Totally gripping and unique in how each word pulls you further and further into a world full of demons, angels and creative characters. Jana Oliver has brilliantly and beautifully written the continued adventure of Riley Blackthorn in a way that the readers begin to understand her situation and what she may face later in life. I love how Riley is such a strong character because we read how she is her own person and won't let anyone talk bad about her or her dad. The story itself is marvelous in how feelings between characters start to show through more and we begin to see a change in personality in some characters. However, the main plot of this book is clever and mysterious and has many twists to keep you engaged. From the start of this book it will have you wanting more and more and more.show moreby Maria
